CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

Date: Saturday 15th October, 2016 Venue: Stamford Bridge Kick-off: 12:30 BST Today’s early kick-off sees Chelsea play host to Leicester City and it might be a meeting between the champions from the last two seasons but you’d have to be familiar with the Premier League to know that, given neither side are showing the form [...]

Hull v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 1st October, 2016 Venue: KC Stadium Kick-off: 15:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees Chelsea take the trip to face Hull City but whether we hot-foot it to the KC Stadium or drag our heels is another matter. Unfortunately, whilst we might have looked at this game as a dead cert for 3 points [...]

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 24th Sept, 2016 Venue: Emirates Stadium Kick-off: 17:30 BST This evening’s game sees us take the short trip to the Emirates to take on Arsenal. We’ve been a thorn in Wenger’s side for quite some time and the Arsenal boss didn’t do any better against Conte in their last meeting either, when Conte’s [...]

Chelsea: Patience and Perspective Needed

Chelsea’s first three games of the season looked promising. Even the draw against Swansea could be put down to poor officiating but last night, after some early season dizziness, we came back down to earth with less of a bump and more of a crash. Quite where our expectations have come from I’m not sure, [...]

CHELSEA v Liverpool: Preview

Date: Friday 16th September, 2016 Venue: Stamford Bridge Kick-off: 20:00 BST The tantrums after last weekend’s draw against Swansea have barely subsided and we’re already back in action for tonight’s game at home to Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s side have struggled for anything resembling consistency in their first four games, with the edge just taken off [...]

Swansea v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 11th September, 2016 Venue: Liberty Stadium Kick-off: 16:00 BST Back from an international break we could have done without, this afternoon’s return to Premier League action takes us to the Liberty Stadium to face a Swansea side who kept their first clean sheet against us since 1981 when we last met in April. [...]

CHELSEA v Burnley: Preview

Date: Saturday 27th August, 2016 Venue: Stamford Bridge’ Kick-off: 15:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees us play host to Burnley at Stamford Bridge. A nice little fixture at this point in the season maybe? Not so, if their last game is anything to go by. Because, whilst today’s visitors didn’t see a lot of the [...]

Watford v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 20th August, 2016 Venue: Vicarage Road Kick-off: 15:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees up travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. Our first game of the season Monday night was harder than it should have. We were head and shoulders the better side against West Ham in a game with more than [...]

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Date: Monday 15th August, 2016 Venue: Stamford Bridge Kick-off: 20:00 BST Here we are then, another season, another Chelsea manager. This year we have Antonio Conte taking charge and given the shambles he inherited after our worst season in years, it’s no secret he’s got his work cut out between now and May. Conte’s first [...]

Chelsea 2016/17 Season: what can we expect?

The new season is upon us, we’ve got a new manager (yet again) and a couple of new players but what’s really changed? According to my Twitter feed, not very much. United and City pat themselves on the back every tweet for their spending prowess and every headline (predictably) has Mourinho as the messiah. Not [...]
